simple pleasures in life

I was talking to a friend last night and he mentioned that he has never played in the rain. Ahhhh, all that he has missed... And with that, we went on talking about the simple (almost free) things that we can do, that will forever be etched in our hearts!

1) Playing in the rain
Have a group of people and it will be doubly fun! I often do this with my cousins especially on our family trips. Sometimes, we even have mud fights. JOY!

2) Colouring books
Remember the excitement it brought when you happily coloured your favourite cartoon character? Try it as it brings just as much excitement after 20 years! Smurfs coloring books are all the fad now so start sharpening you blue color pencil...

3)  Snack on the bed 
Throw caution to the wind about those white bedsheets! Snack while you laze, daydream or even while reading. Do them all on the bed. Roll around a bit while you are at that.

4) Ice-Cream from the Tub 
All you need is a spoon or grab a few spoons and share it. The more the merrier.

5) Blow Bubbles 
I bought a big tube of soap water with a (magic?) wand for MYR5 at Teluk Cempedak. It made me giggle for a good hour! My cousin, who first laughed at me for the childish escapade, in the end, laughed with me when she discovered the sheer pleasure of blowing bubbles!

Come on, go try the above! Live a lil, laugh a lil' more... :D

choosy, picky, fussy

Apparently, that's what I am.

Or at least that is what people's opinion is about me. But then again, you know what they say about opinions - they are like assholes, every body has one. :P

If you are reaching 30, single, unmarried, not lesbian, not a nun, then you must be one of the above. Or you could be just fat.

It doesn't matter if you have an awesome job, your own car, can afford your own house, and have traveled extensively. Nope, nothing else matter unless you bow down to the norms of society and follow what your predecessors have done - get married and make babies.

Stop judging people. Everyone's journey is different. People make decisions on life all the time, but only some rare ones act on them. I give those a pat on the back and would tell them, "Woohoo, comrade!"

I am not about to turn into a bra-burning-feminist, but I have never felt more aware of my gender than how I am feeling now - turning 30 and single.
